The Ash Beanie was designed shortly after I released my stocking for markets and busy season guide. I released that after I told you all what sorts of patterns you should be using to make finished products, that I didn’t have a ton of patterns that met those requirements. I named this beanie after the yin to my yang, Ashley, of A Crafty Concept. She is the “Ash” half of the Ash and Tay community facebook group we created. If you’re looking for a super positive community oriented group then check out our Ash and Tay Facebook group here!
As always, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you share finished pics of your Ash Beanie! I love seeing them and sharing them to my stories.

The Ash Beanie Crochet Pattern
Here is the video tutorial of this cute chunky crochet hat. I walk you through every step from start to finish. If you would just like the written pattern, scroll down a little further to start.
Ash Beanie Written Pattern
Row 1: HDC in 3rd CH from hook. HDC in each CH across. (7sts)
Row 2: CH 2 and turn. bloHDC across in each stitch. (7sts).
Row 3-23: Repeat row 2.
Your band should measure approximately 18″ un-stretched after row 23. At this point wrap the band around your head to see if it fits well. If it is too tight, add 1-2 rows and test again. If it is too loose, remove 1-2 rows and test the fit again.
Now you will fold the brim in half and seam the ends together with slip stitches.
Row 1: CH 1. Now you will make 36 SC evenly around the top edge of the brim we just seamed together. SS to the first SC of the row. (36 sts)
Row 2: CH 2 and turn. Now HDC in each ST around the brim. SS to the first HDC of the row. (36sts)
Row 3-4: Repeat row 2
Your beanie should measure approximately 6.5-7″ tall from bottom of brim to top of row 4 at this point. If you want a more slouchy fit, repeat row 2 one more time.
Row 5: CH 2 and turn. HDC2tog in every stitch around the row. (18sts)
Row 6: Repeat row 5 (9sts)
Now you will tie off leaving a 18″ tail. Flip your Ash Beanie so you are working on the wrong side. Using the long tail of yarn you just left, hold the top hole of the beanie closed and seam it shut using slip stitches and your hook, or whip stitch it with your yarn needle.
Weave in ends. Add a pom if desired. Your Ash Beanie is now complete!
Love the tip about the waste yarn to evenly space your stitches!
